IMAGINE ID is aiming to recruit over 5,000 families over a 5 year period. The study has been funded by the Medical Research Council.
The study is collecting genomic coordinates of all affected individuals who have had a molecular investigation into the cause of their intellectual disability (ID). Individuals with pathogenic Copy Number Variants (CNV) and/or Single Nucleotide Variants (SNV) that are thought to be the cause of the condition are eligible to join.
We are collecting information about children and young adults with ID from families using a secure, accredited online portal. We hope to learn about children’s development, behaviour, mental health and well-being, where a genetic cause underlies the diagnosis, using standardised assessments.
